I am writing to you about the Massacre of Black Wall Street Graphic Novel. I am a student at The U School and we have been learning about the history of black wall street. I’ve learned and understand how black people were treated and targeted for false commitment.
First I would like to share my reactions after reading and annotating the HBO watch men sponsored partnership production. The Massacre of black wall street: graphic novel (The Atlantic). My reaction was that times are way different because if either black people did or didn’t commit crime we’ll have a trial instead of death or jail time.
In addition, from our reading and research I learned some important social and economic conditions that existed in 1921 that connect to our present day 2021 street in the History.com article ; Entrepreneurs who help build Tulsa’s Black wall street (History) I learned about How Negro Business league hosted It’s annual confrence in the neighborhood signing the revival of greenwood as a hud for black business and entrprenuership.
Lastly, I would like to ask a question or after compliment/criticism about the Massacre of Black wall street: Graphic Novel. One thing I like is the Images because It gives me an idea of what’s happening.
Sincerely, Keith Gillespie
